User: What are some arguments against auteurist theory?

Weegy: The auteur theory was used by the directors of the nouvelle vague (New Wave) movement of French cinema in the 1960s as justification for their intensely personal and idiosyncratic films. [ [ One of the ironies of the Auteur theory is that, at the very moment Truffaut was writing, the break-up of the Hollywood studio system during the 1950s was ushering in a period of uncertainty and conservatism in American cinema, with the result that fewer of the sort of films Truffaut admired were actually being made. The "auteur" approach was adopted in English-language film criticism in the 1960s. In the UK, Movie adopted Auteurism, while in the U.S., Andrew Sarris introduced it in the essay, "Notes on the Auteur Theory in 1962". This essay is where the term, "Auteur theory", originated. To be classified as an "auteur", according to Sarris, a director must accomplish technical competence in their technique, personal style in terms of how the movie looks and feels, and interior meaning (although many of Sarris's auterist criteria were left vague citation needed). Later in the decade, Sarris published The American Cinema: Directors and Directions, 1929?1968, which quickly became the unofficial bible of auteurism. The auteurist critics?Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, ?ric Rohmer?wrote mostly about directors (as they were directors themselves), although they also produced some shrewd appreciations of actors. Later writers of the same general school have emphasised the contributions of star personalities such as Mae West. However, the stress was on directors; and screenwriters, producers and others have reacted with a good deal of hostility. ]
